We at Borderland Beat receive a few e-mails from all over the place. With 7,000 hits a day, it’s not surprising that people from both sides of the border are reading the posts. We attempt to sort through the e-mails and digest the information based on recent events reported by the media, as we get most of our news from open sources.
We recently got some information from one person who appears to reside in the Mexican side of the border and seems to have a direct knowledge of what is going on. We had asked to expand a little more on what is happening with the Gulf cartel and Los Zetas in the northeast part of Mexico.
Ok, the people they are mainly looking for is Miguel Treviño Morales aka ZETA 40.. And Heriberto Lazcano aka Lazcano or Lazcas.. What you have heard is sort of true..
The war was started by The Zetas, and it was because of a murder that happened late February of a high ranking officer belonging to ZETA 40.. Supposedly the deal is that the Zetas and the Gulf Cartel have never been mixed.. In the current leaders section you have Lazcano and Miguel along with Costilla and Tormenta.. That's not exactly correct..
For a couple of years there's been bad blood between them, they have always had their very own ranks. Thing is that once Ociel was taken in, the Zetas decided to go on their own path.. Working alongside the Gulf Cartel and charging them fees to do their dirty work and secure locations..
Later on los Zetas started to do their own business, jumping the gulf cartel. For that reason there has always been bad blood between them.. Now, the war started and that's the reason Sinaloa, la Familia and the CDG got together.. They are losing a lot of shipments because of Calderon.. Even though I don't know if you knew this, because it wasn't very widely known.. BUT..
Calderons campaign was sponsored and ran by the Sinaloa Cartel.. If you notice, there are barely any news on any hard kills or heavy people being taken over in Sinaloa property.. See.. The way it works is, Calderon dispatched tons of soldiers to the GULF, and a lot of people is being killed..
BUT because of pressure from the US, Calderon had to dispatch soldiers to more places than just the GULF.. So the soldiers, a lot of them are hardcore patriots, which would be the only reason they are in the military.. Since they get treated like dogs, and paid in shit.. They feed them instant soups maruchan and get shit pay.. Anyways, getting off topic..
Calderon was forced to dispatch soldiers to various locations, and he can't give the soldiers specific orders to let certain people go.. The soldiers are pulling evenly on all sides, so el Chapo Guzman was losing shipments as well.. What do they decide? Temporary truce between the cartels to take out the Bad Publicity Clan aka LOS ZETAS..
See, los zetas are the bloodiest people you will meet.. Originally the zetas was elite, and everybody admired them why? Because they maintained a certain MORALE standard.. Killing people, yes.. Torturing.. YES.. but it was all considered for the overall well being of the Cartel Leader boss Ociel Cardenas and the Mexican People..
Since years back, there was no harm being done to natural, none violent, none criminality affiliated citizens.. But now with Ociel being captured and Lazcano being in charge, everything went down the drain..
See, Sinaloa Cartel Funded Calderons campaign.. And who do you think funded the losing president campaign? Correct...
Gulf cartel funded Andrés Manuel López Obrador's campaign.. I don’t know if you saw all the tv scandal that was going on with the media.. All those times that Obrador appeared giving speeches of how he was stolen from his presidency, that he should of won, asking the people to part ways and pick him as a president and overthrow Calderon..
Haha, it was that important the presidency.. See, Ociel captured.. Obrador in office, was going to do the same thing that Calderon did for el Chapo.. Take him out of jail..
If you notice, there is a couple of stories happening in Sinaloa territory.. Well know with the war and shit, there's a lot more oil burning, but before the Zetas and CDG parted ways there was no heat going into Sinaloa.. Yes of course they would feed the occasional media bone, just to keep the people happy, but nothing big was ever done..
Anything from Sinaloa that you would see on TV, was only people that Chapo no longer needed and was feeding to the wolfs as a Sacrifice, to keep himself safe.. Now I knew people who where affiliated with the CDG back in the day, one of them originally was Ociel Cardenas best friend.. They were both in office when Ociel was still not the leader, that was before Ociel killed Gomez.. One of the persons I knew alongside with Ociel where in charge ATM..This person didn't expect Ociel to actually kill Gomez to take over, so he withdrew from that scene, and that's when all the murders started to occur and I think it was about 2 years or 3 later when Ociel got caught in Matamoros...
See, back in those days the CDG was not really strong, and a lot of people could just do their own thing, everyone independently, when the Zetas came in, they started charging everyone, and all people with illegal activities had to pay "QUOTA" to them, or else they'd rob and kill them..
Even now, the Zetas are paid for any illegal activities being committed. You want pass something through the bridge from Brownsville or Laredo into Tamaulipas? You have to go talk to the people at the bridge, who will organize a meeting with Los Zetas, or if you know them already, just arrange some sort of contract..
They have.. people at the entrances and exits of the towns just reporting everything in their radios... So see, the Zetas are going out of office pretty soon.. Why? Because they lost their most important weapon.. Citizens.. The citizens no longer protect them or admire them.. They all hate them now, and CDG comes along making it all seem like they are going to protect the people, giving money to businesses asking them to report any people they see with guns, etc.. That is how a lot of Zetas are being found/captured..
So, leader of Zetas... Lazcano..
Lazcano is supposed to be one of the bloodiest people you will know.. He is heartless and he kills children and women.. Alike, does not have any remorse for human life... He is current leader of Los Zetas.. That is why they so eagerly want take him out..
because he is as bloody as Lazcano, they have gotten along so well.. He was put in NL in charge of la plaza, the old Zeta who was there left because he did not agree with the way that Lazcano ran shit, he didn't like all the murdering he was going to do..
See, so far I’ve heard from everyone, that Tormenta, TONY TORMENTA, has never been actual boss.. That for some reason he wasn't the leader, the leadership was left to Costilla.. Which is something that a lot of Media doesn't know..
Anyways, what the CDG and basically all the cartels want is to be left alone just to do their business.. They no longer are willing to stand Los Zetas bad publicity and want them out.. Make the people feel secure again so that Calderon can feel unpressured about removing the Military..
I don’t know if you knew, but Valle Hermoso weeks back, there was a shootout en la Plaza between CDG and Zetas.. Basically a slaughter of Zetas.. BUT what people did not know is that the Soldiers were present at the Plaza before either of them got there, and they moved aside to let them fight it out.. Because they want the Zetas out as much as anyone else...
They where a plague that had gotten way out of hand.. Now the problem was also, that the Zetas would charge people for protection, anybody with illicit activities, then still fuck them over and steal their shit.. Zetas where not listening to themselves and their own rules.. You couldn't have a nice truck because they'd kick you out at gunpoint and tell you if you reported it stolen they'd find you and kill you..
So citizens who had money, lawyers, ect.. Where paying for protection... Was the only reason to feel decently protected from any crimes...
So far I’ve heard is that Lazcano.. Word on the street is he is a wise ass cat.. They are having a hard time pinpointing him.. Whiles Z40 has been leaving crumbs all over, it's jut a matter of time before they exactly pinpoint his position.. WORD is, or at least what the CDG hs collected, that Z40 is alternating between NL and Matamoros..
Now lazcano is believed to perhaps be in Monterrey, it's alot bigger and if he hides well enough it will be hard to find him.. But they are running out of space.. Because hole they hide in, and when they leave, they can't come back.. They can only go to so many places before they' eventually cornered.. Now, they will either kill them or feed them to the military.. EITHER WAY, be sure that the CDG will be behind it..
Just recently the CDG lost millions of dollars of shipment in Reynosa where they confiscated, or so I was told about 6-7 vans full of cocaine.. The media I think only showed 2 or 3 on TV..
Anyways too much shit man, hope that info kind of helps you a bit.
